This is our new idea of building a small house using recycled paper tube instead of throwing them away. Using paper tubes is a great way to create a lot of new toys for your kids and bring fun time to yourself or your family and friends.

Today, we are making an awesome mini house made from paper tube that cover by rocks (Nice and weird)… Can use for home decoration or make it for fun.

  • A big or small paper tube that you have
  • Some small rocks
  • Popsicle sticks (for stairs and flooring)
  • Glue
  • Saw for cutting the tube
